How it works

When you have two active numbers in your iPhone, you can in the phone’s settings to decide which of the numbers to be used for mobile data.

You can give each number a name, so they are easy to separate from each other, when you call or send messages. For example, by calling one PRIVATE and the other for WORK.

You can also control which of the two numbers must be the primary, which you can use to FaceTime and send iMessage Vevobahis messages with. The secondary number can only be used for calls, sms and any mobile network – but not iMessage or FaceTime.

You can also choose to have one number only to mobile data, if you for example buy a data card at the holidays.

You can change at any time in the settings of the two numbers directly in the phone’s menu.
